AMD also offers a beta driver for Vulkan

Yesterday I wrote about the Vulkan beta driver from NVIDIA but there's also a new release from the red team. AMD published its Radeon Software beta driver with Vulkan support over here. This driver is primarily intended for developers, a consumer driver will follow in the near future.
This product is based on a published Khronos specification but has not yet passed the Khronos Conformance Test Process. A fully conformant implementation of the Vulkan API will be included in a forthcoming Radeon Software release.

This driver is intended as beta level support for use solely with Vulkan applications and as such some Radeon Software functionality has been removed. This is including and not limited to support for other Graphics APIs, Radeon Settings and other Radeon Software driver features.

What is Vulkan™?
As a complement to OpenGL, descended from AMD's Mantle, and forged by the industry, Vulkan™ is a powerful low-overhead graphics API that gives software developers deep control over the performance, efficiency, and capabilities of Radeon™ GPUs and multi-core CPUs.

Known Issues
Some AMD PowerXpress™ systems may experience instability
Windows re-sizing in some applications may cause an application crash
HDMI and DP to DVI adapters on Windows 7 may intermittently cause display issues
